Former  Dundee striker  signs a new Championship contract – and could debut at Dundee United

Cillian Sheridan has agreed to a short-term contract with the Hampden club, bringing “experience” to the Queen’s Park frontline.

Since his contract with Inverness expired in January, the former striker for Dundee and St Johnstone has been free to sign with any team.

Callum Davidson has now added the 34-year-old to strengthen his attacking options.

Sheridan had been training with St Johnstone to stay healthy after leaving Inverness.

Sheridan made 26 appearances and scored one goal during his two injury-plagued seasons at Dens Park.

After a widely travelled career that included stops in Poland, Israel, New Zealand, Cyprus, and Bulgaria, the three-time capped Ireland international returned to the United Kingdom.

Callum Davidson stated on the Queen’s Park website, “We have been looking to get more experience on board and we have that now in key positions.”

“Players like Cillian will help us with that because he knows the game so well. We will always be a club that is looking to develop players.”

“He provides us with increased physical presence up front and the ability to sneak past defences.”

Tannadice debut?

“I have been training with the club for a few weeks now, and the facilities and the people have been fantastic,” Sheridan stated.

“I am excited to be a part of this until the end of the season.”

This weekend, Sheridan might make his Spiders debut at Tannadice when Queen’s Park visits Championship leaders Dundee United.

He made his last appearance for Caley Thistle last month against the Tangerines, substituting late in a 1-0 loss.
